Government by lowest bidder contract.
I don't disagree with anything you've written, but Government is inefficient and expensive by design. It's built into the Due Process clause. And checks and balances doubles and triples inefficiencies. Government jobs are often essentially sinecures.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that; just observing. So it's human nature to turn over such work to private industry which can treat its workers much more shabilly and then eventually automate them out of existence.
And in keeping with the title of this thread, remember what "robot" means in the original Czech. Not "worker," but "forced labor."
